THAT PREMIERE WAS.......very underwhelming.

Am I the only one who found it for the most part to be really boring? Let's spend the entire hour, focusing on only 3 of the cast. I waited 2 months for this? I want to know what happens to Daryl, Glenn, Maggie!! I don't want to watch Michonne walk around for an hour.
Alexandre - 2/9/2014, 7:20 PM
Episode was pretty meh
SAZMD - 2/9/2014, 7:21 PM
Started well, ended well, but the middle was kind of boring.
Comedian03 - 2/9/2014, 7:23 PM
On the plus side, they probably saved a tonne of money on script writing. There was what, maybe 5 minutes of dialogue the entire episode? lol
JoeMomma29 - 2/9/2014, 7:30 PM
Yeah it was a letdown in my opinion, heck you know something is wrong when you are rooting for the Zombies to eat the kid!!!!!!
JoeMomma29 - 2/9/2014, 7:31 PM
Side note next weeks episode looks solid.

Carl is the most lucky son of a bitch in tv history. Let it had been an extra their ass would have been dead in mere seconds. And on the topic of Carl they made him pretty annoying much like he was in Season 2. He made all this character progression in season 3 and the beginning of season 4 and relapse right back into an annoying ass brat. This episode was pretty boring for a mid-season premire, here's hoping the rest won't be.

Man they cast the Game of Throne kids so well, too bad it couldnt translate over to TWD. Not a personal shot at Chandler Riggs character but he just doesnt have the acting chops
gastitdk - 2/9/2014, 7:41 PM
I don't know why you guys keep giving this series a chance. It has bored me out. Season 1 was great, Season 2 was a boredome, first half of season 3 was very good, second half another boredome. And Season 4 hasn't interested me at all. The show is a major cliffhanger. Nothing happens during the entire season, BUT in the final chapter, when something finally happens, bang, see you on february. I'd rather play the awesome Telltale Games or read the comics.
Wildaniel - 2/9/2014, 7:44 PM
Hershels head!!! Im gonna have nightmares tonight, lol.
batmanvsuperman - 2/9/2014, 7:55 PM
Stop crying its just one episode and Carl is awesome the actor is amazing
CaptShipwreck - 2/9/2014, 7:55 PM
Michonne 's nightmare was very very creepy
SAZMD - 2/9/2014, 8:01 PM
This may be the most Carl has acted the whole series. He is getting better though.
Comedian03 - 2/9/2014, 8:32 PM
So because we were disappointed with an episode, we have boring lives? Solid logic.

Season 4 has been pretty solid so far with some great episodes, and in December we were left with a pretty major cliffhanger, and I expected a little more resolution in the premiere. But instead there was almost zero dialogue, all of Carl's growing up and character development was pretty well thrown out the window, all Michonne did was walk around, and ALL of the other members of the group including fan favorites Glenn and Daryl weren't shown or even mentioned.

Basically all the things we tuned in to see tonight, weren't shown or even teased.

MightyZeus - 2/9/2014, 8:35 PM
It was okay. Could have been better.

I do give credit to the actor playing Carl. With each season of The Walking Dead Chandler's acting get's better. It's not great but it's decent.
MisterHolmes - 2/9/2014, 8:39 PM
It was exactly like the comic, Perfectly done episode, they did wat they had to
incepshawn - 2/9/2014, 8:45 PM
A great return to what it's like to live in that shitty world. Gave some backstory for Michonne in a different and non forced way. Solid episode leading up to the rest of the season.
Chekkarma - 2/9/2014, 8:47 PM
Thought it was a solid episode,not one of the best but solid.Loved the hallucination sequence and mass zombie kill for Michonne. Carl's becoming a little bad-ass in his own respect,but still naive. Next couple of episodes will most likely follow the same format as tonights,Darryl/Beth,Tyrese,Sasha,Bob/and those girls, Glenn/Maggie etc, keeping the focus as minimal and introducing more of their backgrounds......8/10 for tonights episode.
incepshawn - 2/9/2014, 8:52 PM
Also, really liked the chalk and pudding scene.
TMcFarlaneFan - 2/9/2014, 9:47 PM
This show only has 16 episodes a year. They've done 9 this season and have barely done anything but spin their wheels.

Since they have 5 episodes less than a normal series I would think they might move their asses instead of these baby steps.

It was a good solid episode.Too bad some people didn't enjoy it but they could always change the channel!
MisterHolmes - 2/9/2014, 10:14 PM
@ds9epicfan ive found out very early its very hard to please alot of the people who use this site.
prettynucIear - 2/9/2014, 10:14 PM
watch true detective instead. tonight's episode was the most badass thing I've seen since game of thrones red wedding.
loki668 - 2/9/2014, 10:18 PM
I thought that it was a great episode. I really enjoyed watching Michonne go "Yojimbo" on those walkers!! I don't understand the people who found it boring but that's their view of the show, I guess.
ds9epicfan - 2/9/2014, 10:47 PM
I guess you're right,people will give in to hate rather than change the channel!
AsgardianHobo - 2/9/2014, 10:56 PM
It may not have been the greatest episode ever, but I seriously had a giant grin on my face at the end. 3 1/2 seasons and still addicted!
Demongod20 - 2/10/2014, 1:24 AM
Is it just me or does the pacing of the show just feels slow. It's like Season 1 and 2 knew where it was going and lots of things happened in every episode and the Story and plot where constantly progressing. They where trying to get from point A to point B. Now it just feel like the characters are wondering around with nothing to drive them. Stuff is just happening.

Season one
1. Rick Looking for Family
2. Rick works his way to Atlanta
3. Rick mets friends, escapes Atlanta and finds Family.
4. Group looks for CDC
5. Group escapes from CDC

Season two
1. Group looses Sofia and looks for Sofia
2. Carl gets shot and group tries to save his life.
3. Group settle on Farm
4. Group finds man from another group and try to decide what to do with him.
5. Rick kills Shane and attracts Herd.
6. Everyone try to survive.

Season 3
Only the first half of the season was good. The plot was clear and you knew the characters goals.
1. Clear the prison.
2. Deal with inmates.
3. Deal with rouge inmate.
4. Wood Berry kidnaps people
5. Group rescue people.

After that the show slowed to a snail pace. Everyone became Zombie killing Superheroes, The Zombies got sidelined and became a secondy threat. Then all the tension left the show.

Season 4
Everything is slow paced. The Plot barely moves forward and every episode is a drama and a character piece. The Governor episodes where boring and felt point less.
TheAstoundingMan - 2/10/2014, 1:43 AM

Honestly, I prefer it this way. The pacing has definitely slowed with every succeeding season, but they are giving the characters (of which there are many) room to breath.

The episode was essentially a retelling of the comic, but the book did it so well that I can't fault them for wanting to emulate it. And next week, we get to see what the others have had to go through, which makes sense for the second ep.

this show is starting to suck a dick
Zordan - 2/10/2014, 3:45 AM
watch true detective not this crap
whoa123 - 2/10/2014, 3:56 AM
Liked this episode, the dramatic turn was very good imo.
fortycals - 2/10/2014, 4:23 AM
Great episode. Liked that Carl learned a little lesson. Maybe he would be less of a douche. Love the focus on just the three, because there would've been to much to get through if they focused on everyone else. Happy to see the choices that was made by michonne and Carl. If I took one theme from this episode, it would be making a decision not to go at it alone in the cold world. Oh and Rick would have been dead [frick]ing with me.
kevberg - 2/10/2014, 4:47 AM
Great seeing Aldis Hodge in the show even if it was for a few moments. Was awesome on leverage.
kevberg - 2/10/2014, 4:51 AM
Kinda torn on the Carl thing. I like that we get to see the affects on kid all this has.. but he was such a mega douche. And that as well, he has his reasons. Great acting.
CyberBishop - 2/10/2014, 5:28 AM
Haters gonna hate. Liked the episode very much. Can't please everyone people.
